  • Wheel polish

    Hi. I want to get my rims polished. I currently have an mt09 with blue rims. The problem is in some light they look purple and hideous. Also people accuse me of being a freo supporter.
    I want to get the outer part of the wheel polished up but I don’t know who to talk to about it or how it even gets done. Anyone had it done in the past?

      You could do like I did last night leaving the Optus stadium when I zipped me bike jacket up over my purple shirt.

      Rattlecan black would do the same thing.

        The colour is candy apple blue...some Yamahahaha riders call it blurple because of the aformentined confusion in some light...The paint comes off fairly easilly...I found out when I dropped the rear caliper on the wheel when removing it to fit a new tyre causing me to have to get a rattle can from Malaga. I would imagine a bit of elbow grease and some fine wet and dry will get the results you want.

          Maybe you should swap rims, you get a pristine one and as he want's to remove the purple anyway he's part way there

                Interested to here if anyone can genuinely help biscuits out here with a recommended wheel polishing service. I have an alloy rim that I wouldn't mind getting polished and would like to hear about peoples experiences. As I write this though it occurs to me it has probably been commented on numerous times in other threads over the years.

                  There are numerous threads on PSB, however I couldn't get old results on PSB's search feature. A google search sorta worked: Click here

                  I've used these guys a few times for production work and they aren't bad. Often quite cheap.
